Great car, fun to drive manual transmission (if you know how to do that). It's got 72k miles on it but runs just fine. Keep in mind, you will NOT be able to pick the car up at San Francisco Airport. You will need to take a 5min ride on Uber ($25-$35 minimum cost).

This is a lovely car, and the owner Matthel seems really nice. Turo, however, not so nice. I tried to book for 1 day, plus 2 hrs. They tried to charge me for two full days (so I revised my booking to 24 hrs). I bought their coverage, and it rotted up to 100% of the single day price! I woke to discover that they double-charged my credit card, spent 30 minutes on their chatbot (they acknowledged error) and now I’m waiting for them to reverse charges. Also? They advertised SFO delivery of the car, but in fact I had to Uber to a sketchy location one town away from the airport to pickup and drop off the car.

Matthel's response

Hi Danese, I am sorry Turo didn’t live up to your expectations. I try my best with each and every rental. This review seems like is directed towards Turo and not your experience with the car or me as a host. Seems a bit unfair to negatively review me. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do. Thanks
